Archie Bruce – Wembley

Archie Bruce, the young Batley Bulldogs and Dewsbury Moor player whose death in France last weekend stunned Rugby League, will be remembered in a minute’s applause before the Coral Challenge Cup Final at Wembley on Saturday.

The minute’s applause, to celebrate his life, will be held before the crowd are invited to join in singing the traditional Cup Final anthem, Abide with Me.

It will be preceded by the Warners Champion Schools Final for Year 7 Boys, between Standish Community High School of Wigan, and Great Sankey High School – the first Warrington school to participate in the Steven Mullaney Memorial Match.

Those boys will then join a Pitch Parade also including all the participants from the London Rugby League Challenge Cup Primary RL Festival which is being staged at The Hive in Barnet on Saturday morning as part of Rugby League’s Sky Try programme – with 18 clubs taking part in Under-7s, Under-9s and Under-11s competitions (full list below).

Representatives of 19 of the community clubs, schools, colleges and Universities to have received CreatedBy funding as part of the 2021 Rugby League World Cup’s InspirationALL legacy programme will also be presented to the crowd (full details below).

Taylor Prescott is due to deliver the Challenge Cup Final match ball to the centre spot exactly as his father Steve did 10 years ago – after a gruelling overland journey from Perpignan, as part of the ongoing fund-raising efforts for the Steve Prescott Foundation in memory of the former St Helens, Hull and Wakefield Trinity full-back, and his inspirational defiance of a rare form of cancer. Taylor and a group of Steve’s former friends and team-mates will run a half marathon from Uxbridge to Wembley on Saturday morning to complete their journey, after cycling thousands of miles through France and then rowing a dragon boat 26 miles down the River Thames. They will also join the pre-match Pitch Parade.

AS lockdown restrictions start to ease, now is the time for everyone connected with Oldham RLFC to do all they can to help with getting income from our Club Cash lottery back to where it was before the pandemic started to bite.

This is vital for the club and its finances which, as you all know, have taken a massive hit in the past 12 months.

Collectors will be returning to door-to-door visits in the next few weeks and we hope people who suspended payments will pick up where they left off as we strive and work hard to get back to where we were before the pandemic caused us to lose 50 per cent of our lottery income.

Many of our regular punters, who would normally pay a collector, have answered our calls for help by finding other ways to pay and to retain their chances of winning prizes.

To those people we are very grateful and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them once again for their loyal and continued support.

The lottery, of course, is potentially one of our biggest fund-raisers and for as little as £1 a week — more if you wish — you can help the club immensely and at the same time have chances to win £1,000, £100, £50, £25 or one of ten consolation prizes of £10.

That’s the present prize structure. There’s every chance it will be increased once we are out of lockdown, door-to-door collections start again and we get back to some sort of normality.

In the meantime you can join, or start up again, by contacting the club on 07904 898177 or by email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

For more information about the lottery, and for the “great opportunities” provided by our partnership with the National Youth and Community Development Association (NYCDA) go our Club Cash page.

There, you will find all the results and a detailed statement about getting back to normal with the help of our not-for-profit partners.

All proceeds from the partnership will continue to support the club and help us to meet the aims of our Club Cash activities, particularly in its aims and objectives to be an active stakeholder in the local community.
